Details

This village, to the north of Rugby, is in the River Swift valley. The church and the village are on a hill, hence the name.

The 12th century church was rebuilt in Victorian times. The tower, built in 1885, is in Perpendicular style. The font and a sculpture in the south aisle are Norman. There are several 16th and 17th century monuments and some beautiful stained glass.

The village also contains a fine 18th century building - Coton House, now a Post Office Management College, said to be of Samuel Wyatt's design. There was once a village of Coton, presumably destroyed when the original Coton House was built in Elizabethan times.

On the eastern boundary of the parish is the site of the Roman settlement of Tripontium. Roman coins and pottery from this site are on display in Rugby Museum, where you can learn about what life was like in Roman Tripontium.
